PD that doesn’t suck

With Swivl, you can make sure that the one-size-fits-all model of Professional Development is a thing of the past. For example, try using Swivl Live Streaming and Zoom to create virtual PLCs. The combination makes it possible for participants to engage in collaborative working groups wherever they are, saving both time and money. 

Swivl benefits Instructional Coaching by allowing you to provide time-stamped feedback within the Teams platform that is specific, actionable, and fair.  Bookmarking and Rubrics allow teachers and coaches to refer to evidence-based practices to engage in meaningful dialogue. 

For teachers at the start of their careers, New Teacher Induction programs can be lifesavers. With Swivl, building best practice libraries in Swivl Teams for new teachers to reference exemplar instruction practices can provide guidance in a time of anxiety. Teachers from all across the district can upload lessons to the Team, building bonds across schools. 

Swivl super user Andrew Duininck, Assistant Headmaster of Great Hearts Monte Vista says, “Swivl allows us to exponentially grow, which is our goal. In every feedback session the mindset is growth: I want to continue to be better, not just for myself but for the kids.”
